This scam doesn't surprise me anymore. But what I got was a text message, not a call. It was an instruction to call a certain phone number because my bank account has been locked due to suspicious activities. But I thought, if my account was compromised, shouldn't I get a call from the bank and not just an anonymous text message? So what I did was call the bank directly and the rep there confirmed the message was a bluff. I reported the scam and posted the phone number at CALLERCENTER.
